WHAT IS WORLD VISION’S 30 HOUR FAMINE? • It’s a worldwide hunger awareness program to help feed the world’s poorest children. • Our youth group goes without food for 30 hours to get a taste of true hunger. • Through family, friends and group fundraisers we raise money to save kids’ lives. ($30 will feed and care for a child for an entire month!) • The experience teaches us about Christ’s compassion, and about how we can help change the world.
IS WORLD HUNGER STILL A BIG ISSUE? • Every day 29,000 children die from hunger and hunger-related diseases. • As many as 1 in 5 children die before reaching their fifth birthday. • One sixth of the world’s population does not have access to safe drinking water.
WHY DO THE FAMINE? • We want to feel the power of Christ’s compassion. • It brings our youth group closer together, and in a closer relationship with Christ. • If we don’t step up, who will?
HOW THE 30 HOUR FAMINE MAKES A DIFFERENCE • Just $1 can feed and care for a child for an entire day. • The price of a family dinner we eat at a restaurant in the U.S. can provide food and care for several months. • We’re offering children more than a chance to survive – we’re giving them hope for a better future.
HOW YOU CAN HELP • Pray for our group members as we do the 30 Hour Famine. • Sponsor a Famine participant (or two or three!) as they do the Famine. • Support our group fundraisers. • Volunteer to help at our Famine event.
BEYOND THE FAMINE • You can have a deeper relationship with one child through World Vision’s child sponsorship program. • Child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to change a child’s life while helping an entire community become self-sufficient. • To sponsor a child, check with your church’s youth leader, visit our Famine Sunday table after the service,or call 800-7-FAMINE (800-732-6463).
